I traveled with my sister and mom and we stayed at this hotel for a week. We did not expect much because of the mixed reviews, but it was fantastic! The hotel has fantastic staff. They are very helpful, polite and service minded. You always get a great treatment by their staff and managers, whether you are in the reception, restaurant or in the shops. Also, the housekeeping is great. The rooms are always clean.
There are several shops at the hotel. If you stay at this hotel you have to visit at least two of the shops; Gehad's parfume shop and Barsoums shop with handmade stuff. Gehad's perfumes are completely amazing, you won't be disappointed. Barsoum sells handmade scarves, clothes, leather bags etc. Barsoum was even willing to make a beautiful, costume made laptop case for me in leather in a couple of days, but there was no time due to lack of days before catching the flight back to Sweden.
The hotel is located in the old part of the city. But its only 5-10 minutes away from the new part of the city, its very close. There you will find all restaurants, shops etc.
I definitely recommend this hotel.
